CADRA® Design & Drafting Software Solutions
SofTech’s CADRA® is a full-featured mechanical design and drafting program designed with a clear goal in mind: to significantly increase your company's production of mechanical drawings.
Using CADRA, engineers, designers, and drafters produce industry standard detail, layout, and assembly drawings; 2.5D designs including isometrics; and technical illustrations, typically in less time and with fewer steps than any other CAD program. You’ll achieve tangible, measurable results to accelerate your product development efforts to better compete in today's global economy.
Since 1983, CADRA CAD/CAM solutions have successfully helped thousands of mechanical manufacturing companies around the world achieve significant improvements in design productivity and product quality. These companies rely on CADRA solutions to help them design and manufacture a wide range of mechanical parts, products, and machinery in almost every industry.
CADRA has played a major a role in a number of high profile projects including: the Canadian oil pipeline; the Sea Wolf, the U.S. Navy's next-generation attack submarine; and the sophisticated luggage handling systems used at some of the world's busiest air terminals including London's Heathrow.
